Grace Little came to Redbird Ranch in August of 2020. She is the first and only professional rider and manager to address a fairly substantial collection of horses which had previously been shown as halter horses only. Bringing Grace on board opened the door for competing in western performance.
When Grace arrived, she found she was not alone. Skye Her Many Horses had already been here for a while. Skye took a liking to Grace immediately.
There were so many horses to get to know. Grace had the task of evaluating all of them, selling some, training others, choosing the horses most suited for western competition and ranch work. Skye would watch from a respectful distance.
Then one day in late August, Grace got on a mare named Cookie - a trained cutting and reining horse, with nothing more than a rope around her neck, and starting working cattle with her. Skye had never seen anything like that. She was mesmerized.
